Mike Africa Jr. joins us on this week's episode of Political Prisoner Radio. Mike Jr. was born inside a prisoner cell, his mother Debbie Sims Africa and his father Mike Afrika fell in love as members of the Philly based MOVE Organization. Both are still being held along with other MOVE 9 members.
The MOVE organization engaged in providing services to the community and helping their neighbors with odd jobs and pet sitting. They also provided drug addition counseling and helped recently released slaves meet their parole requirements to keep them off the plantation.
According to the San Francisco BayView,
"On Aug. 8, 1978, the Move Organization’s headquarters was attacked in a pre-dawn raid by several hundred Philadelphia cops and officials. Move members were charged for the assault and are still languishing in prison."
The Move 9 have been held as prisoners of the war on non-white people that has been waged on the North America continent since Columbus and his band stumbled upon it after cutting a bloody path through the Caribbean islands. As prisoners of war, they are not treated like other captives of the so-called prison system. Parole boards continue to deny parole to political prisoners like the MOVE 9 and the Federal Govt continues to deny the existence of political prisoners.
